Disabled Writers is a resource to help editors connect with disabled writers and journalists, and journalists connect with disabled sources. Our goal is specifically to promote paid opportunities for multiply marginalized members of the disability community, and to encourage editors and journalists to think of disabled people for stories that stretch beyond disability issues.

I'm a 25-year-old woman living in rural Maine. I have wanted to be a writer since I was a little girl. I did some writing for some student publications in college. After taking a few years off from finishing my degree and working (due to a flare of my illness), I am now getting back on track to finally starting my career as a journalist. My dream is to one day be a travel writer.
